A 2D engine build on top of libgdx. The goal of this engine is to provide and easy to use framework which abstracts handling the low-level functions (Already mostly done by libgdx) for you.

The engine is currently under heavy development, so there will be bugs :) The following features are not compelety implemented. We also plan to implement more features as we go.

Current Features

  • Slick2D like GameContainer system
    • backed by the Game Interface
    • easy to extend, all callback methods can be overriden and changed
    • provides a Graphics class which can be used in a Java2D/Slick2D like way
  • World System
    • with a base Entity class
    • simple collision system (not done yet)
  • Map System
    • with writing/reading maps via our own MapIO class
    • all based on Interfaces to give you to maximum flexibilty
    • (a maker is currently under development)
  • Font Features
    • featrues manipulating letters for animations (jumping letters etc.)
    • (currently under changes to fit the system into libgdx)
  • State Based Gaming
    • with extended handling states via GameContext
    • implements transitions to move from one state to another.
    • (currently under development)
  • Game Context
    • gives you acces to Interfaces to handle the context in which a game runs
    • there are a lot of default implementations (With some missing... :/)
  • Awesome Debugging
